Socio-economic aspects of energy

Energy has a key role within the perspective of sustainable development with impact on society, the economy and employment.

 
   

Tools will be develop to assess and monitor the socio-economic aspects of energy technologies and systems. A dual approach will be developed of 'technology assessments' made at the project level and 'global systems analysis' at a more general level.

Technology assessments will range in scope from social behaviour and acceptance through to comparative assessments, while systems analysis will centre on understanding the relationship between energy, environment, technologies and economic growth.
